High School Football America Releases Two-Part Series on America's Oldest High School Football Game
New London High School and Norwich Free Academy in Connecticut have been playing since 1875
In Part One, Trisha Hoffman goes inside the New London Whalers’ gym for a pep rally that pumps-up the team and the students for the rivalry game that began in 1875. Part of the pre-game pageantry is a Powder Puff Football game between New London High School junior and senior girls.
Part Two of the series will look at the game itself, and be available on June 30, 2010.
Last season, HSFA traveled nearly 4,700 miles to eight states to produce video vignettes that appear at www.highschoolfootballamerica.com.
High School Football America has already released videos on Miles, Iowa; Paw Paw, Michigan; and Sheridan, Indiana. In the coming weeks, HSFA will post video vignettes on Burlington, Wisconsin; Woodstock, Illinois and Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania.
